Generosity That Inspires and Transforms
Imagine a world where health care is delivered by nurses who have been educated by world-renowned leaders, supported by groundbreaking research, and trained on state-of-the-art equipment. With your support, we can get that much closer to ending the nursing shortage. Private support can assist the College with the recruitment and retention of much-needed faculty to teach the best and brightest students, to conduct innovative research, and provide the most advanced clinical training for our future nurses.
The UF College of Nursing is extremely grateful to those who have generously supported its programs and endeavors. Private funding enables us to continue to provide the finest educational, teaching, research, and practice experiences for our students and faculty. These experiences are translated into providing the highest quality patient care for all and allow our students and faculty to CARE, LEAD and INSPIRE.

Sponsor-a-Student White Coat Program
Sponsor a College of Nursing student for $30 for online ceremonies and $45 for in-person ceremonies to provide a white coat for one of the 204 juniors and first-year accelerated students. The White Coat Ceremony is a fairly new tradition at the UF College of Nursing and takes place at the beginning of the BSN students’ nursing studies. The students are cloaked with official College of Nursing white coats to ensure a foundation and commitment to providing patient-centered care throughout their professional development.

Alumni Council Book Awards
The Alumni Council Book Awards program gives small monetary awards to help offset the rising cost of textbooks for first-year nursing students.
Currently, first-year nursing students spend nearly $1,300 on books. This program allows alumni to take an active role in the future of current nursing students by helping alleviate the financial strain of purchasing textbooks and ensuring that smart and talented students complete their undergraduate degree at UF. In 2018, the alumni honored the 15 book Award winners at the fall reunion festivities.
